Storyline

In Spain, they didn't just dub the original "Sesame Street" and then broadcast it. They combined it with new material made in Spain. "Barrio Sesamo" combines an original spanish episode with "Sesame Street" footage dubbed to spanish. This program has passed through three periods. In the first period, which comes from 1979 to 1980, Caponata, the spanish name for Big Bird, lives in a street where all the neighbours are friends and live happily. Perezgil is Caponata's best friend. In the second period, from 1983 to 1987, the most succesful in Spain, Espinete is a big pink hedgehog that has a lot of friends in the street where he lives. His best friend is Don Pimpom. The third period, the most recent one, started around 1995, and I don't know the exact year when it finished. Here Blucky is the new main character and the single episode format of the two previous periods is changed by short sketches combined with Sesame Street footage. It never reached the same succes the Espinete period ... Written by Anonymous

Chema el Panadero
14 September 2005 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Chema el Panadero is the real connection with the Madrid's eighties reality. He is the contact between children world and the young adult world of the young ones than join this fact called "movida"... The Madrid's movida was a real pop stomp coming from drugged teens, the kind of reality that you can see in Ivan Zulueta's "Arrebato" or in the first films made by Pedro Almodovar. This liberty wind change some things in the media area, changing the way of making products for the children. The last time I saw Chema el Panadero was in an lottery spot dressed like an punky (mohican crest included)... I think he has (or had) problems with heroin. I clam his comeback to the media world... God save the queen and Chema el Panadero!
